bad news is we're only doing it today because republicans lost their shirt in the last election. question, should we be doing immigration reform only to help republicans? nah, i don't think so. all right, into that and a whole mess of other issues but first here we get the latest, today's current news update, lisa ferguson standing by in our studios in los angeles. good morning lisa. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. today, president obama unveils his own new plan for immigration reform he's speaking in las vegas at 11:55 this morning and we're expecting this to be a more liberal plan than the blueprint the senate laid out yesterday. as bill mentioned a group of eight bipartisan senators have been work behind closed doors and finally released their new plan yesterday on capitol hill. some three basic bullet points from that plan, it would provide a path to probationary legal status for most of the country's 11 million illegal immigrants provided they do not have a criminal background. it would also call for a way to it's allow low-skilled immigrants like farm workers to enter

independent, not a democrat. so the democrats would not elect him. but we need -- but there are democrats who will stand up. dick durbin wouldn't have gone along with this, i am sure. this is a time not just for the democratic party. this is a time for the good of the nation even -- i have to say this. even if democrats were in the minority they should not be able to to obstruct everything the way republicans have done. by the way, another big mistake they made was back in 1975 or so that before that, you used to need two-thirds of the senate and they reduced it t lamont calling from maryville indiana. caller: like the caller said before me, okay, well back in the day, two years ago, that's all harry reid talked about. after obama won, that's all he talked about. when you look at it now, what is actually changed? i think it's the gun debate and it's going to get primaried or whatever by the nra. it has to be something because that should have passed. >> bill: i guess your cell phone cut out. i'm sorry. no. you made a good point. no. i don't understand why the change either why given -- there

of the focus shifts for the off-year election. >>. >> uh-huh. >> i think obama has even less because the partisan move is so nasty. >> that's what makes it so important that you only have a year. >> right. and he sort of indicated that, i guess, you know so far as we have seen on guns, immigration reform. it may be climate change. right? of course continuing on the economy. you. >>. >> you keep coming back to that. you need to create jobs. when you look back to the other -- you mentioned the differences from four years ago remember the sense of absolute panic that we had about whether our financial system was going to survive. >> bill: right. >> in the month of the inauguration 820. people didn't know whether we were going to come out of this. >> right. survive as a nation. no. and certainly, that has turned around, still a long ways to go. it's a glorious day, george. it's nice to start it off with you early this morning. thank you so much. maybe we will see you in the crowd there somewhere in the mall. >> freezing. >> if not -- >>. >> yeah. if not back at the whitehouse pretty soon

events in benghazi. yes, yes, republicans are still -- the election is long gone, but they are they are trying to exploit the murder ofan an american am bats dor for cheap political purposes. they don't blame the terrorist who killed them. they blame the state department who nominated him in the obama administration. whose side are they on anyway? give them hell hillary today. give them hell. we will talk about that and more on the "full-court press." the latest: today's current news update lisa has it out in los angeles. >> hey bill majority leader is giving an ult mader. reid is giving mccog36 hours to come up with a plan, to about midday tomorrow. over the last few years we have seen a record number of filibusters from republicans. now reid wants to shift the power to the minority, to require 41 members to vote to maintain a filibuster rather than the usual 60 votes to end it. many democrats and filibuster reform advocates are sponsoring that plan, calling it an effective middle path and a step in the right direction. if mcconnell refuse to see agree, reid says he is willing to p

-- you know america, we've got to do this. america is ready for it. >> look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we have got to understand that. >> so, there it is again, the elements of it includea the dream act so that the kids who are brought here illegally through -- they have nothing to do with it. their parents brought them here would be eligible for citizenship. there would be a tough but a fair path to sitship for those 11 markos moulitsas people who have been here. that path would be set out and, again, the details of the bill will be announced later today. that path will be set forward but they can't start down that path to citizenship until a commission of governors and law enforcement officials certify that, in fact, the border is tighter. we have the controls we need at the border. once that happens, then, these 11 million people can start that path to citizenship. that will all be announced today. the question i have is -- i would love to hear from you. 866-55-press, how important

election, i think. not just in this speech but in the way he talked about gun control last week. it is a very -- i mean he has really taken this mandate we have a debate over whether or not the president has a mandate. he knows the people are behind him. he knows that the people realize that whatever he wants to get done is met with so much obstructionism that he's -- he's on top here. he can say where he wants to go and the people are with him. >> progressives have been saying for a long time, regardless of what he says, there is still going to be op sition. they're still going to view him as a socialist. he satisfies no one on the opposition to say let's all hold hands. they'll still find a problem with that sentiment. >> bill: yeah, right. i thought was really remarkable when he stood up and said again linking it to the constitution, linking it to our responsibilities to make sure that that promised equality actually is real in our day and time, he talked about those who -- particularly the disadvantaged, those who need some help, seniors on medicare, social security, medicaid, h
